Mets Flash: Beltran Blasts A Pair, Ike Remains Hot
The Mets picked up their first win of the season at Citi Field thanks to a big night by Carlos Beltran and Ike Davis.
Beltran blasted a two-run homer in his first at-bat to put the Mets up 2-0 in the first inning, then after the Mets lost the lead, he belted a solo shot in the fourth to tie the game at 3.
In his third at-bat, Beltran nearly missed becoming the first Met every to homer three times in one game at home. It’s never been done before, however Jerry Hairston Jr. took his eyes off the booming fly and dropped it sending Beltran to second base and Wright to third. Enter Ike Davis.
After a Scott Hairston strikeout, Davis scorched a two-run triple to the gap in right-center, scoring both Wright and Beltran. The Mets would never look back.
The Mets beat the Nationals 8-4 and end their three game losing streak tonight.
Ike Davis has now driven in a run in seven of his last eight games and he is quickly on his way to becoming one of the faces of this franchise.
